Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 32

By this point I think you guys know where I stand on the coloring from this period so I'm not going to complain this week other than to say nothing has changed.

What has changed this week is the inker. Mike Esposito was a perfectly good inker but never seemed to fit as well as he should have on this title but now we get Jim Mooney over Sal Buscema, a very good combination art-wise.

The whole image is neatly framed by the title and the machinery with a nice close-up of Prince Namor front and center.

This issue, as one can see by the title, introduces Llyra, not a particularly well-thought out character but one who will become THE major player in Subby's life...and NOT in a good way.
